Membership Orientation
Phi Kappa Tau believes in good governance and transparency at all levels of the Fraternity—local, regional and national.

The Mark of Distinction Membership Orientation Program (MOD) is a six- to eight-week process designed to familiarize associate members with Phi Kappa Tau. This hands-on and hazing-free educational program, assists members in learning the Fraternity’s history and the expectations of membership. Membership Orientation provides structure for building brotherhood in a positive, productive environment. Each week, a piece of the creed is dissected and discussed with associate members to help explain Phi Tau values, the national organization and the local chapter.

All chapters and colonies have adopted the Mark of Distinction Membership Orientation Program. The date that your chapter must re-submit their adherence forms is located on the most recent version of the Borradaile Challenge.

There are opportunities available to add sections or modify sections of the MOD program. Please see the “add/modify” form below and submit to your chapter’s success manager.

If you have any questions, or if you need the National Exam answer key, please contact your chapter’s success manager.
